Craft and Quilt fair at Jeffs shed...Melbourne

I enjoyed my trip in to town on Friday with a friend from Kilmore Quilters and NOTY group. I picked Kris up on the way and we had a great full day. We managed to get in early and was asked to leave at the end of the day... A very full day...
I did buy but haven't taken a photo. I bought some ribbon, a Xmas stitchery pattern from Fig n Berry, some metal rings for some purses, 2 balls of cotton yarn for some more dishcloths, rotary blades, appliqué needles, sashiko needles and a pattern and templates for a hand pieced quilt for my travels. I will prepare some pieces and put in Basil Bus for when we decide to go away for a few day. A very good day.
I then returned on Sunday  for the day to sit on the Kilmore Quilters table and promote our group. We had a great display of our Honour quilts but I didn't take photos of them all.
I sat and chatted with Liz for the day. Thanks to Andrea and Nancy for giving us a lunch break. Thanks to Wendy for organising our group to have the great honour of displaying our quilts....

Well done to the Kilmore girls.... What a great achievement.....
Have a read to see how they did.....

Here are some photos of the quilts I liked, me doing some stitching and of course me with my quilt.
I am sorry that they are blurry. They were taken on my not so good phone. But better than nothing... Our Honour quilts

 And the winner is Wendy & Jenny

Love the design and quilting

 All the quilting is amazing


Love the scraps in this

 All those diamonds...


This was sweet

 Different ideas I liked

This was made in 1840...

 And what I was working on .


I can link this up with Slow Stitching Sunday with Kathy.

  10. I just love posts of quilt shows. Your favorites are so beautiful. That one is like a Dear Jane but not - it is beyond amazing! I also love the one with the woman and old cars in the background. I think I adore realistic quilts. They are all so beautiful. Honestly, I don't think there is such a thing as an ugly quilt.
